Vanderbijlpark - Members of the media were on Wednesday barred from entering the Vanderbijlpark Magistrate's Court where EFF leader Julius Malema was appearing.

Security guards at the door told the media they were instructed not to allow them inside.

Malema was ushered into the court through the back gate used by police officers.

His appearance was short and the case was postponed to 28 February.

The National Prosecuting Authority was not immediately available for comment.

His supporters were singing and dancing outside the court.

Economic Freedom Fighters members wearing red berets and T-shirts were carrying Malema posters as they danced.

Malema was down to appear on charges of reckless or negligent driving.

He was arrested in December for allegedly driving at 215km/h in a 120km/h zone.
